boost from boobs

suddenly the ncr extension got a lot of korean users.

and people love the extension...

back in december i experienced a major boost in the download of my ncr extension for chrome. today i realised that this was due to an article in the korean magazine to be precise, the article titled "구글, 한국 사용자 '세이프서치' 강제 적용 피하기".

since my korean is not perfect, i needed a tiny bit of help from google translate, for understanding the content of the article. the reason for the boost was boobs. there seems to have been some changes to how "safe search" worked for the korean version of google back in december. if you're an avid google search user you should know that you can disable "safe search" for enabling a more "interesting" search experience. in short, with safe search off you can find boobs, and other adult content on google.

now, with my ncr extension, i help users staying on the .com domain of google search, no matter where they are located in the world. and so far the .com version of the google search seems to provide more boobs than local sites, like

so, if you are located outside of the us, and feel that you need more porn, maybe downloading ncr can help you.
